This rocker is made from cherry with African Purple Heart on the back spindles, wrapped around the joints, inlayed into the runners and used for plugs. An ottoman was created that also incorporated the purple heart with the cherry. We weren’t quite sure how this combination would turn out, but it really surprised us on how beautiful it was. The customers were very happy with it and it really complimented their other teak furniture. A few construction photos were included to show some of the process. We have a hard time remembering to take the construction photos, but did our best this time to do so. I think the customers really like seeing how their special piece is created and what goes into making fine furniture.
